Heritage Action Opposes Shaheen-Portman Energy Efficiency Bill
Washington – The Shaheen-Portman energy efficiency legislation may be voted on at the end of the Senate vote-a-rama. This is an inappropriate program of federal mandates and subsidies that is duplicative of existing federal and state efforts.
The free market is the best mechanism for decreasing costs and increasing efficiency in energy production. The Shaheen-Portman legislation would have the federal government overstep its appropriate role.
Heritage Action opposes this legislation as laid out in our May 02, 2014 key vote. A vote on this legislation will be included in our scorecard.
